About our Eiderdowns
Eiderdowns are not just a beautiful addition to your bedroom, but highly practical, with excellent insulation properties they are guaranteed to keep you cosy on the coldest of nights. The first sumptuous eiderdowns were used in Victorian times to replace itchy blankets, and were traditionally made using silky satins or chintzy fabric. These days eiderdowns are not only used to add a sumptuous extra topping to a bed, but also work perfectly as a cosy lap blanket.
Here at the Stitchery, my eiderdowns are made using the same traditional methods, filled with sustainable yet luxurious feather and down filling sandwiched between layers of calendered cambric lining to make sure everything stays in place.
From time to time, you will find eiderdowns in stock online in a variety of classic and timeliness linen gingham’s and ticking stripe fabrics, ready to ship via across the UK from my studio in the Scottish Borders.
Eiderdowns can also be ordered in a variety of designer fabrics to suit your design aesthetic and style. Choose from frilled or piped edging, same fabric on both sides or different fabrics for each side, in sizes from mini to super king. Your eiderdown will be made completely to your requirements, giving you a truly bespoke piece made to last for many years to come.

How to use an eiderdown
The Traditional Way
Layer a fitted or flat sheet on the bed first, add a second decorative flat sheet on top. Next add your choice of blanket, aiming for a soft natural material. Finish with the sumptuous eiderdown on top which will come up to just below your pillows.
The Modern Way
Simply make your bed as usual with a fitted or flat sheet, followed a contemporary duvet with cover. Then lay your eiderdown on top for extra warmth.
